An organic bath?

In Homebase again this afternoon, continuing my attempts to find a pot plant holder that actually fits one of the pot plants I want to buy, I heard an announcement over the PA system. This was pushing all their sale lines, including what was described as “an organic bath” reduced to a price just over £1,000. What on earth is an organic bath?  I’d be very worried that while I was sitting in it it might disintegrate into neat biodegradable pieces.  Seems quite pricey too.

  1. Label anything ‘organic’ and you can be sure that some idiot will pay three times more than a similar ‘un-organic’ item.

  2. This is actually a serious problem, Sheona.

    For example, South Oxfordshire issues us with green “plastic” recycling containers, but when they changed the system, they advised us that the green plastic containers were not actually recyclable.

    We could plant things in them, or so the advice went, but they would not take them back.

    Now this really expensive bath may not be destined for landfill; so worth every penny – not ! 🙂

  3. Thank you for your comments, ladies.

    Boadicea, I think you’re right. My sister-in-law always impresses on us that everything we eat in her house is organic. “They see you coming”, I think. The last time we entertained them they ate heartily, praising the flavour, of the totally non-organic produce.

    We took ours to the tip and put it in the landfill skip.

  5. Thanks for the link, Janus. All I’ve found so far are organic bath products, not the actual receptacles into which one inserts hot water, smellies and self.

    Sometimes, however, it is worth it. Milk in the USA is generally a poor imitation of what it is even in Asia. Yes, Taiwanese and Japanese milk taste much, much better than most US milk. There are some organic brands, however, which have high-quality milk which simply tastes better. Usually, however, I would agree with you. The best way to have the best food, perhaps, is simply to try to buy fresh, locally-grown products.
